Dr. Yolanda Ragland, DPM

Podiatrist

DR. YOLANDA RAGLAND, DPM Podiatric Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Yolanda Ragland, DPM (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) is a Podiatric Reconstruction Forefoot Surgeon. She maintains offices on Park Avenue in New York City as well as the Washington Metropolitan area, downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. The focus of her practice is bunion and hammer toe correction. For over a decade, Dr. Ragland has been providing medically surgery with a pleasing cosmetic result. “I understand that patients want to have sandal-ready feet with little to no visible scarring. After having a consultation with me, new patients realize I truly understand the angst they experience and they are confident that I will address their concerns with their feet.” – Dr. Ragland Dr. Ragland began her education with a Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Maryland, College Park. During her tour at U of M, She completed a fellowship in the dermatology branch of the National Cancer Institute under Dr. Stephen Katzs at the National Institutes of Health. She obtained a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. She is also certified in Surgical Training through the academic affiliate of Weil Medical College of Cornell University. Dr. Ragland's services are available to all good surgical candidates with painful and unsightly feet. However, African American women gravitate to her practice in droves due to her understanding of the complex social and at times, psychologically challenges that comes with being or becoming a successful black woman. “Many of my patients are embarrassed by their foot issues. Typically, within the black culture beautiful feet are a must. They will not wear sandals in public and some go so far to hide their feet even when in the comforts of their own homes.” – Dr. Ragland This is why Dr Ragland created Fix Your Feet® and developed her secret Tiara Toe Technique®. Her goal is to improve the lifestyle of women beyond sandals or the beach, particularly African American women. She recognizes that for many women, self confidences can come from how you feel about yourself and how you look in your shoes. “I would like to contribute to women closing each deal, comfortably and confidently in their six figure heels.” – Dr. Ragland Dr. Ragland is not your typical podiatrist. She is an affluent, grounded entrepreneur who takes pride in empowering other women, inspiring them to reach their best. She just happens to be great at performing bunion and hammertoe surgery. Dr. Ragland has a collection of post surgical products that are available exclusively for her patients. She is currently developing her line of designer she solutions to accompany all of the fabulous designer shoes in every woman’s closet. Important Facts ?

Dr. Ragland is an exceptional cosmetic podiatrist that knows feet Ike the back of her hand. She has done a superb job removing my bunions to the point that people see my feet and when I tell them I had mybunions removed they say WHERE? I recommend her services even in my sleep to everyone.
